    Will the Winter Olympics go ahead without incident?

    Simple question really do you think Russia can control these games? Given the preparation, suicide attacks and threats can the Russians control this?

    My answer is no due to the fact there has already been attacks and the Russians historically don't like to work with other nations when it comes to security.

    I don't know, but I sincerely hope that there won't be any serious incidents at the Olympics. I'm not confident, however.

    I hope it won't be in any way like the 1972 summer games. Hard to shake that thought when contemplating what's going on with Russia right now.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I hope so too Dianna because Sport is one of the only things this world has left to unite it. It's always amazing to me to watch the world come together under those 5 rings.

    Take heart. A Yeti with a bomb strapped to its chest is an awfully large target.

    Just trying to make light of a tense situation. A little levity goes a long way.

    don't think you can make light of global terror but as a fan of dark comedy I applaud your effort
